    So will the v7 client increase my PPD? Using the FAHTracker at the moment, have not updated in a while.

    Only if you're using ATI/AMD GPU.

    Don't know about increase, but it's possible. I may move all cards over to it. Simplifies running multiple clients, and ppd doesn't seem to suffer.

    Bringing my -bigadv rigs home from WCG tonight. Flying out of town for the next week, so hopefully all rigs will keep returning work. You guy's have been doing a great job while some of us were away. Keep up the phenomenal work!

    :toast:

    P.S. Chimp Challenge starts in less than 3 weeks. GET READY!!!!

    My 450 has been retired and my 570 is up for sale. Want to move to a single high powered card for the Summer, then upgrade again in the fall.

    If anyone sees a great deal on a 580 (looking @ the Lightning) drop me a PM. I already attempted to get B360's TF2, no dice :laugh:

    Sorry to say that due to the tax man I have to take some of my rigs off folding to lower the electric bill a little. Leaving rigs 2 and 4 folding, the rest have been shut down. Looks like it is back to semi-retirement for this old timer.:eek::cry::laugh:

    Leaving the beautiful Florida Springtime weather for a week in Beloit, WI.:cry: I have left all rigs running except one 4xGPU2 rig which is troublesome. Got my laptop, so I'll be on TPU every night. Keep on folding my friends!!!!!

    How long does a -bigadv WU usually take to fold? Want to run them over the Easter weekend on my crunchers to get them setup and test stability for Chimp Challenge.

    Depends on whether you're running the CPU by itself or having to run a GPU in the same rig. The OC also has an impact on the duration and the type of work unit. Average is 2-3 days with a maximum of 4 days to complete. The early you complete the WU, the bigger the bonus points you will get;)

    Cool, thanks. Got no decent folding cards atm so it will be CPU only, although I think they should be pretty decent. OC will vary depending how true rumours are that F@H stresses more than WCG :)

    The 6970 is a decent F@H card with the new V7 (core 16) client, BUT, don't use it on a bigadv system because of the load that it puts on the CPU.

    the load is only between 5~10% for core_16 WU's if being run along side an SMP WU atleast that's what I get but then I can't do BA wu's being that I only posses an PII x4 :( I shouldn't think an i7 2600K would have much problem specially if you OC it a bit

    my CPU doesnt like the SMP part of V7, it causes too many crashes. But my overclock is likely the culprit. Also, I dont think you get enough points to make the SMP worthwhile comparatively to the GPU.

    How much load on the CPU are you seeing from the GPU clients?
